IN life there will always be winners and losers – and lockdown is no exception. Since coronavirus struck the nation has been adapting to necessary changes to everyday life.

Some well-known figures have risen to the challenge to do their bit during the crisis . . . while the reputations of others have certainly taken a hit as a result of their antics during the pandemic. Emma Pietras brings you the covid heroes and villains.

The Losers

Madonna

Sitting naked in a bath strewn with rose petals in one of her many mansions, the 61-year-old singer showed how out-of-touch she is by telling fans: "Covid is the great equaliser."

Hard man Ant told people to "calm the f*** down" about the coronavirus.

In a post on Instagram, the 39-year-old star of SAS: Who Dares Wins said: "Covid-19 doesn't bother me. Why? Because I'm strong and able." He apologised and deleted his comments.

Steph McGovern

Telly journalist Steph, 37, was poached from the BBC to present a new daily live show on Channel 4.

Lockdown meant it came from her home. Only 234,000 watched and it lasted just six weeks after neighbours complained filming was causing a disturbance.

Gal Gadot

Wonder Woman actress Gal, 35, assembled a host of famous names on social media to sing John Lennon's Imagine – but it looked like her celeb pals were just trying to stay in the limelight.

Ricky Gervais wasn't happy. He said: "It was an awful rendition."

Grealish apologised the next day in a grovelling video posted to Twitter and he was fined £150,000 by his club.

Olly Murs

With no one to sing to, pop star Olly, 35, has taken to playing pranks on girlfriend Amelia Tank, 27.

But he took things a step too far when, last month, he sat with his bits inside a Pringles can for her to discover. He had to say sorry to horrified fans.
